A first job is an interesting thing, It is an experience that one will reflect back to and remember for a life time. My first job was at a small, Italian family owned, grocery store called Farmland.

same highschool as me. Dave was in my grade but I had never really talked to him before because he always came of as somewhat of a Jerk and Mike was in the grade below me so I had never really known him either. There were also two girls, Meaghan and Michelle. Meaghan lived in my town but went to a private high school so and Michelle lived in a town next to me. It is interesting how these strangers eventually became some of my closest friends. I worked at Farmland for a little under three years as a cashier. I would have to
